West Virginia’s Legislature has passed a sweeping abortion ban with few exceptions. Several Republicans say they hope the bill approved Tuesday will make it impossible for the state’s only abortion clinic to continue to offer the procedure. Under the legislation, rape and incest victims would be able to obtain abortions at up to eight weeks of pregnancy, but only if they report to law enforcement first. Such victims who are minors would have until 14 weeks to terminate a pregnancy and must report to either law enforcement or a physician. Abortions also would be allowed in cases of medical emergencies.

Lowry Mays, whose accidental purchase of a San Antonio radio station  propelled him into the nation’s largest owner of radio stations, has died. Texas A&M University, Mays’ alma mater and site of the Lowry Mays College & Graduate School of Business, announced Mays died Monday at age 87. The statement didn’t specify where Mays died or the circumstances of his death. Mays was a prosperous petroleum engineer and investment banker when he agreed to co-sign a note to purchase a San Antonio radio station. That purchase grew into Clear Channel Communications, now named iHeartMedia, owner of more than 860 radio stations.
The Emmy Awards reached a record-low audience of 5.9 million people on NBC Monday night. The Nielsen company said that was smaller than even the pandemic-disrupted ceremony in 2020, which was seen by 6.1 million people. The show honoring television’s best work saw ‘Ted Lasso’ named best comedy and ‘Succession’ the best drama. Normally shown on a Sunday, it was moved to Monday to make room for NBC’s ‘Sunday Night Football,’ and was bedeviled by football again: there was a competitive Monday night game between Denver and Seattle. The splintering of television’s audiences into many more shows and services has led to a longstanding decline in Emmy ratings.

LaQuan Smith launched his spring collection, am exploration of the female form, on the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier docked on the Hudson River. Smith juxtaposed romantic chiffon ensembles with utilitarian outfits for day and evening wear. He said his collection was inspired by a recent trip to Morocco, combined with his New York sensibilities. “This collection was all about sensuality, female formality and really having a sense of freedom and fluidity,” Smith said.  La La Anthony arrived wearing a leopard print bodysuit and actor Julia Fox posed in a fur-trimmed mini skirt at Monday night’s show.
Officials say the Office of Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education is investigating allegations of antisemitism at the University of Vermont. The complaint filed by the Louis D.

The complaint also alleges that a university teaching assistant threatened to reduce the grades of students who expressed support for Zionism, a movement that sees Israel as the homeland for Jewish people. University officials say they are aware of the investigation and they are looking forward to providing the agency with a full response.

A panel discussion between an Atlantic City casino executive and proponents of a smoking ban in the city’s casinos has been canceled after the casino boss pulled out. Mark Giannantonio, president of Resorts Casino, was to represent the industry on the panel during next week’s East Coast Gaming Congress. But Giannantonio recently became president of the Casino Association of New Jersey, the casinos’ trade group which vehemently opposes a smoking ban. The session would have been the first detailed public discussion of New Jersey’s proposed casino smoking ban, which is supported by Gov. Phil Murphy and more than half the state Legislature.
The Missouri Supreme Court won’t take up a lawsuit challenging a ballot proposal to legalize recreational marijuana. Supreme Court judges on Tuesday refused to take up a case seeking to knock the issue off the Nov. 8 ballot. The proposal would allow those age 21 and older to buy and grow marijuana for personal consumption as early as this year. The measure also would also require courts to wipe most past marijuana convictions clean. Missouri already allows medical marijuana use.

A Minnesota medical examiner has determined that singer and actor Darius Campbell Danesh, who went from a British reality television show to a stage and music career, died from inhaling chloroethane and suffocating. The 41-year-old singer and actor was found unresponsive in his apartment in Rochester, Minnesota, on Aug. 11. The Southern Minnesota Regional Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death was an accident. Investigators said there were no signs of “intent or suspicious circumstances.” Danesh’s family said in a statement that he had taken chloroethane for chronic pain suffered after a 2010 car crash in Spain that left him with a broken neck.
California has launched a publicly funded website to promote the state’s abortion services. The website is part of Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s pledge to make California a sanctuary for women seeking abortions. The website includes information on different types of abortions and how to get one. It lets people know their legal rights, including that teenagers don’t need their parents’ permission to get an abortion in the state. The site also lists 166 abortion clinics and their locations, as well as links to financial aid for travel and lodging. Newsom was careful to add that the website does not track users or store personal information.

Nearly $650,000 gained from the sale of a suburban Boston home that belonged to a couple authorities say illegally did business with a Syrian electronics company has gone to a fund that provides compensation to victims of international state-sponsored terrorism. Federal prosecutors said Tuesday the Syrian company was involved in the acquisition of parts that could be used to build improvised explosive devices and used against United States and coalition troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

One of the nation’s leading researchers on the effects of fetal alcohol abuse says the birth mother of Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz drank more in pregnancy than any woman he has documented. Dr. Kenneth Jones testified Tuesday that Brenda Woodard’s drinking led to Cruz having emotional and behavioral problems throughout his life. Earlier testimony showed Woodard drank fortified wine and malt liquor during her pregnancy. The 23-year-old Cruz has pleaded guilty to the 2018 murders of 17 people at Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. His trial is to determine whether he is sentenced to death or life without parole.
